April Photo:  marine still life


These anemones are beautiful invertebrate animals that we enjoy in the little pools that the sea leaves when it recedes at low tide, where they remain anchored without moving. Well, without moving is a saying because its tentacles are activated as soon as they notice any small touch, or simply by a bit of breeze or when the tide begins to rise. I like to observe them to try to compose an image that reflects their beauty, while looking for adequate light conditions, which sometimes lack what is critical to capture their movements; and others are left over, generating many brightnesses and strong contrasts.

This time I used a tripod at water level to compose this detail with a macro lens, that reminded me of a still life.
